Participated in the first annual I-91 Shop Hop this past weekend, which was a tour of 11 local yarn shops all along I-91 between Putney, VT and New Haven, CT. My friend, and fellow knitter, Catharine came down from Albany to make the road trip with me. We had a great time catching up, scouting out some new shops, and finding some great deals on yarn!
A few of our favorites…
1. WEBS in Northampton, MA. My new favorite yarn store, it’s HUGE!! We spent 2 hours there, and they have lots of interesting classes. I will likely be making the trip back up there very soon. I was so overwhelmed that I forgot to take a picture 😦
2. The Green Mountain Spinnery in Putney, VT. A totally green spinnery operation…and they gave us a tour and let us jump in their wool room.
3. Basketville in Putney, VT. You can’t drive up I-91 into VT without stopping at Basketville. Stocked up on some great wine and picked up a few baskets.
Looking forward to next year already!!
